Sorry i can't help but laugh as i read all the posting on all the excitment that the 2A4 has generated here and also the memories of the many senoirs here as they share their days of travelling down S.Gedong track...
Having been in the force for some 12 years( 4 with armour, 1 with infantry, 4 with Guards and 3 with Maintenance), Reading all these posting brings back fond memories and tears...
Anyway, I'm altum_lover76 here.
would like to get to know more like minded people here and also learn how to take photos for my collection of armour models.
yeah man. Loved tanks, but i'm an infant - ry man. Got a few models, but no time to assemble. anyone with Leo2 model and dun mind organising a model shoot ? I mean tanks model
Just heard a rumour from a friend that the paladins are the first to go the Germany for training
There are so many things to look at, from expected terrain one would be training/fighting on, to the type of weapon that's most cost-effective with a high kill ratio.
Take a geese hunter, he can certainly buy a GPMG to shoot down a single goose it would achieve his aim. But why does he needs to waste so many 30 cents when all it takes is just a good aim and a single shot with a double barrelled shotgun?
Yes Hwchoy, I've just joined the gang here.
Well, photos have a few but these are models status WIP. mostly vietnam, isareal M113. Got a few OIF M113 and M1A2, M1HA, M1A1 and M1 panther. Plus a couple of LAV 25. Not very well dones though. Nothing to shout about.
Here are the photos.
P.s:Ehhh... i don't see the attachements icon... can anyone help?
Unlikely that they will appear in open house since usually the AI vehicles gets sent. There are not many engineer M113s around and they have interesting mounting brackets for the barb wires and iron pickets etc.
They carry number plates beginning with 66xx but not sure what it is now with 5 digit plates.
No promise, But i will go thru my files and technical drawings. Yes all variant of BX is much larger than the M1113. But in my opinoin, the BX is just the Bradley in disguise.
My two cents worth.
This is good news. Our armed farces will have a bigger pinch than our neighbours. This will be a good disturbance to our invisible enemies in our mist.
Was CEV/AVLB trained
Lols. NSF nia =) anyway Mrbrown did make a podcast on it sometime back...
that's the whole point isn't it, we needed a bradley-like vehicle but it has to be MLC30 and less then 3m wide.
Agree that the BX is extremely to drive. YOu only need a civilian class 3 equivliant to pilot the machine.
Also, if you are to look at it carefully, the road wheel set together with the sprockets and tacks are Bradley similar, Get what i mean?
also, the waepon system, BUshmaster 25mm(m242)canon, which has been upgraded to 30 mm is also from the bradley.
Check it out man!!
By the way, i'm cross trained on only A and B platforms, specialising mainly on B platforms.
